Jobseeker's Fury As Grocer Firm Brands Her 'Chavvy'

A job hunter was humiliated when a blundering employee at an organic grocers she applied for work at accidentally sent her an email describing her as 'chavvy'.

Paige Bond of New Milton, Hampshire, branded Forest Whole Food's response 'disgusting' after applying for a box packaging role.

The email read: 'She is probably worth interviewing if you think you can cope with having someone like her around.'



The message also mentioned her pink fingernails adding she 'would probably lift spirits in the packing room'.

It said she was probably 'irritating' and concluded: 'Delete this email in case you took her on and she found it.'

Ms Bond, 48, who has previously worked as a brand ambassador, told MailOnline she thought the email was 'disgusting' and said the worker went on to leave her a grovelling voicemail apology.

'When she left the message she said that the guys would really love to meet me,' Ms Bond added.

'I thought I'm a strong woman, I will go for that interview.

'I wanted to see that woman.'



The divorcee also spoke to a man at the store who she believes is the owner and was invited in for an interview.

But Ms Bond claims she did not receive an apology in person until she brought up the email at the end of the interview.

Ms Bond, who never met with the worker who sent the email, added: 'I'm not a violent person.

'If I had met her on the day I would have never ever have gone metal [at her].'

Speaking to Sun Online, an employee at Forest Whole Foods acknowledged the blunder and said they had apologised. 



Ms Bond claimed the email that was accidentally sent to her was written by a woman called Josie.

Josie Bickle is listed for being responsible for the firm's commitment to 'protect and respect customer privacy'.

Ms Bond said she has not heard back from the organic grocers but has no intention of working for the firm. 



She said: 'I think it's disgusting because I am unemployed. I will go for anything.

'If you had someone who was really, really depressed and looking for a job it could tip someone over the edge.'
